We saw molluscs. They have a shell and ONE big sucker foot.

|Dakota (& Maka from Room 3) have a close look at the sea star's belly.|
The touch tanks were very, very cool. Here are a lot of very interested, potential marine scientists checking out the array of creatures.
|Check out the GIANT sea star!|
Come back and have another peek at the blog in a couple of days. The authors in Room 4 have written some awesome aquarium stories.
